I am planning on mounting a small flat screen tv on a support wall at the end of my island. Problem: Do I need cable box? Where to put it? Want a clean uncluttered look.
Only your cable company knows for sure if you need a box. It's usually a function of the company, your location, and what kind of programming you receive (or want to receive).
If a box is necessary, it can be hidden in a cabinet with an infrared repeater.
